Lockdown Learning

  • Before and during the Coronavirus lockdown, numerous organisations have started providing on-line learning webinars, podcasts, courses, etc.
  • Some are free (paid for by other means perhaps) others are for a small fee some are a free taster for something more.
  • Please do not expect everything for free, we all have to make a living to pay our way too.
  • Many will have a construction or specification focus and some will have an environmental flavouring (there will be an emphasis on these here)
  • GBE are capturing a list of those providers and offerings here for ease of access to them

Social Media highlighting

  • GBE are also identifying postings in social media by adding ‘GBE Lockdown Learning’ to retweets, etc.
